seeking that instagram worthy view pt 2 | rediscovering home

they are sitting, quite, scrolling, as one does on a sunday morning while waiting for coffee

boy: “I can’t find the picture from the end of the hike on your instagram”

girl: “I never really posted any, just the video on youtube”

boy: “Why?”

girl: “They didn’t turn out well. The video was more of an accurate representation of that hike, the pictures looked too gloomy”

girl: “Ok, but coffee first”

they continue scrolling, until they feel the smell of fresh coffee

talking to herself: “this house cannot be this noisy”

she stands up just so to avoid being still. there is something restless about the noises she keeps hearing. makes it impossible to focus. anything is an excuse to keep her mind off the small panic attack starting to boil.

a Gopro is an amazing little thing | Creative Assingment

girl: “I want to buy a GoPro”

boy: “What for? You don’t do any action sports and it’s not summer so you are not gonna need it for underwater shots either”

girl: “There’s a lot more I can do with it”

boy: “If you create something you wouldn’t just as easily be able to create with your current camera, I will pay for it”

 

Should the boy pay for the girl’s gopro?
